What is the world's largest volunteer force? It is the cadre of teachers and administrators in Christian education that is estimated to be about 4.1 million in number throughout the various denominations worldwide. In my opinion, every one of these volunteers and every pastor should read this book. It is a powerful tool for Christian education ministries, especially on the local church level. The author has skillfully woven anecdotes, live cases, and practical suggestions to help us recognize how students learn in different ways, why we need multiple methods of instruction if we are to reach diverse learners, and how we can use that knowledge to build the self-esteem of learners. The book is written in an engaging style. It is readable and inspiring. In reading the book one feels energized and eager to put some of its suggestions to use and to spread the word to other Sabbath/Sunday school teachers. It will open up a world of understanding.
